Message from

Hon’ble Chief Minister


I am immensely happy to bring out the hand book of
Land Pooling Scheme on the occasion of Amaravati
Happy City Summit-2018.

The People’s Capital- Amaravati will be a role model


for other upcoming cities around the world. The
Land Pooling Scheme of this scale is first of Its kind
in the country or any democratic nation. It gives me
great pleasure to know that this scheme enabled
approx. 24000 farmers to be the ultimate gainers
and became partners in the development process
of this World Class city. Continuous participation
of farmers at every stage of the planning and
development process is truly commendable. I am
forever grateful for the sacrifices made by the
farmers in this process.

Nara Chandrababu Naidu


Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh
Message from

Hon’ble Minister
The vision of Honourable Chief Minister is being achieved through the new
and innovative Land Pooling Scheme Process. The efforts of all the people’s
representatives such as Ministers , MP’s, MLA’s, ZPP’s, MPP’s, ZPTC’s,
MPTC’s and Sarpanches are praiseworthy in conducting consultations and
guiding the farmers about the financial and social benefits they are going to
receive and convincing them in voluntary contribution of their lands for the
formation of the Capital city.

The citizens of Amaravati, GOAP and APCRDA will together strive to realise
the aspirations of people of Andhra Pradesh in building Amaravati as the
new state capital. The capital city is one of the fastest pre-planned cities in
the world mainly due to support and voluntary contribution by the farmers
within two months and formulation of Master plan within six months.

I wish all the success for the Amaravati Happy Cities Summit.

Dr. P. Narayana
Minister, MAUD
Message from

Principal Secretary
After the bifurcation of combined Andhra Pradesh and on deciding the
location of Capital City for new Andhra Pradesh State, the question raised
in every body’s mind was- how to procure land to meet the requirements of
Comprehensive city that not only serves as Administrative Capital but also
triggers the socio economic growth? Hence, the land procurement for the
new capital was done through a more humane mechanism of Land Pooling
Scheme, where the landowners are not displaced and become part of the
economic growth and benefit from the city development both socially and
economically. The city is envisioned to be a benchmark for inclusive and
sustainable model of growth for all the cities all over the world.

APCRDA will continue its efforts to provide the city with world class
infrastructure and smart technologies to be on par with the world best cities.
I congratulate the entire team of APCRDA for the successful contribution
towards the Land Pooling Scheme and wish all the success for the Amaravati
Happy Cities Summit.

Foreword
“The People’s Capital” of Andhra Pradesh, Amaravati is envisioned to be global center for citizen
centric governance, economic opportunities, quality living, world-class infrastructure, healthy
environment and efficient resource management and the core objective of Amaravati City
development will always remain the holistic development of its citizens. The city is projected
to reach a population of 3.5 million and employment of 1.5 million by 2050.

The Government of Andhra Pradesh enacted the ‘AP Capital Region Development Act 2014’ and
has formed AP Capital Region Development Authority (APCRDA) for the purposes of planning,
coordination, execution, supervision, financing, funding and for promoting and securing the
planned development of the capital region development area. The GoAP undertook one of the
largest and ambitious tasks for developing the state’s Greenfield capital city of 217 sq.km through
Land Pooling Scheme (APCRDA Act 2014and acquired under LA &RR Act, 2013). The Land
Pooling Scheme is a voluntary land procurement mechanism where the landowners become
direct beneficiaries and partners in the development process of Amaravati. The overwhelming
support of 24,000 farmers who came together in India’s largest-ever consensus-based land
pooling of 33,000 acres in a very short span of under 60 days is a clear vindication of people’s
trust on the State Government. The Government of Andhra Pradesh makes a conscious effort
to involve land owners in this inclusive process making Amaravati Capital City a true “People’s
Capital”.

The land pooling Scheme provided the residents of Amaravati with benefits where approx. 586
cr. are spent on Social development schemes etc. and Economic benefits through returnable
plot options for every cent of land pooled. The farmers were provided with approx. 4000 plot
options and more than 30% of land in capital city is returned to landowners in the form of
developable plots. The Land Pooling Process is done through public consultations and the
inputs provided by the citizens played a key role in shaping the Capital City Master plan and
Neighbourhood layouts. The Masteplan was developed incorporating access to public spaces/
greens/facilities within five minute walking distance; accessibility to public transit within ten
minute walking distance; safe streets; world class sub surface infrastructure; heterogeneous
mix of densities and existing village integration etc.

Continuous bottom up engagement process with landowners and citizens of Amaravati in


day-to-day interactions through public consultation, participation and knowledge sharing
workshop with respect to selection of the project site, land allocation through land pooling
system, identifying the critical issues at the village level and thereby integrating them at the
local level planning as well as the overall city level planning to achieve a sustainable ecology in
the city development process.

Amaravati Land Pooling Scheme has been a very successful model and can be employed
across multiple places in India where a large amount of land procurement is required for
socio-economic activity for the nation. Given the democratic style of functioning of our
Government, the Land Pooling scheme presents an efficient partnership-based model in
line with our values and social systems. To honour the sacrifice and belief entrusted by the
people of Andhra Pradesh AP CRDA is leaving no stone unturned in providing cutting-edge
infrastructure, comfortable livelihood and immense prosperity for the People of Amaravati.

APCRDA would like to thank everyone for their continued efforts in shaping our world class
capital city and hope this book will provide as an insightful guide.

Just before the commencement of lottery, the
Farmer’s Master and Plot Master is given to APOnline.
APOnline ports the masters into the database
maintained for lottery system.

number of plots opted by a single farmer under
that sub category. Then it marks the same number
of plots opted by a single farmer side by side to the
extent possible. For example if H5 sub category of Total 56,606

one farmer has opted 4 such plots while others have Plots total plots awarded

10.1 Introduction
Nelapadu is located in the South Western quarter of
the Capital City. Nelapadu village being the first village
to participate in the LPS and being well responsive to
the Land Pooling process, was taken up as the first
village for preparation of layout of returnable plots
under the Land Pooling Scheme.
Following the official allotment of returnable plots on
25th June 2016, Nelapadu has become the point of
reference for preparation of Land Pooling layouts for
all the other villages in the Capital City.
